About Me & My Family

I'm Gwyneth, mom of two girls, aged 15 and 11, who loves to travel in the Southeast US and beyond. I love to be on the go, whether visiting old favorites or discovering new places. I find that after each trip I have learned more about my children, traveling with my children, and traveling in general, and I hope our experiences will help others make the most of their travel adventures.

"Family camping"
The girls and I stopped at this campground on our way up north from Atlanta. In general, KOA campgrounds have been good places for us to stop for a night on roadtrips, and we were not disappointed. The office stayed open late and the pool was open quite late (not always the case at KOAs). The facilities were clean and our campsite was quite comfortable.

"Opt for the backstage version!"
This summer we (kids 14 and 11) went twice on a tour of the Fox. While the first tour we went on was wonderful, the second time we paid a little more and were able to go to the projection room, backstage and even some dressing rooms. Highly recommended for families with older kids who can follow the history lessons and manage steep stairs.

"Sundays in the Garden!"
Only minutes from the center of Decatur, this lovely gem is open during daylight hours, seven days a week. From 2 to 4 pm on the last Sunday of every month, kids will enjoy music and storytimes. We enjoy the simple, quietness of the park in contrast to the larger Atlanta Botanical Gardens.

"Georgia History Awesome"
As part of our study of Georgia history, we decided to make a side trip over to the Funk Heritage Center. What a lovely place! When we walked in, my younger child was given a little scavenger hunt to complete -- always a hit with hr and a way to help her learn. My older daughter enjoyed the history and art exhibits as well as the permanent tool exhibit - artistic and historical! We had a nice walk out back to the historical homes, but I'd prefer to go when there is an event in the old village.

"Lovely views!"
Our family camped for two nights in the West Rim campground. We loved hiking along the canyon, and the nature center was informative and fun. We brought the dog along to camp and hike with us, and he loved it too. The hikes down (and back) up from the falls were a bit steep with lots and lots of stairs. Be prepared! I look forward to visiting in every season!
